Some Days You’re the Girl, Some Days You’re the Crocadilly


I had a belly laugh yesterday when I charged up my old iPhone and looked through the notes section. I used to keep a running list of future dog names and the last entry was added 331 days ago at 11:35am. “Jam”. On Tuesday, February 25, 2014 I thought JAM was a good name for a dog and that helps me realize that being a little lost in life right now is not as final as it feels. Because a year ago I was a girl who wanted to name a dog Jam.

I’ve been reading Still Writing and have been so inspired to write a novel. While I was falling asleep the other night I had to keep sitting up to jot down ideas as they popped in to my snoozy brain. I think I may have come up with the beginning paragraph and the rest of the book would play out as sort of an “embellished memoir” full of truths and make-believes. So there’s my millionth dream to bring to fruition, but as a lady on HGTV’s Property Virgins (my favourite show to watch over my morning coffee) said, “dreaming is free”.

PS: my favourite song of the week, perfume I want need and an important reminder… dang. 😉
Happy Thursday!  xo

After Monday, Before Wednesday

uncertainty inspo

Today is the last Tuesday I’ll spend in Saskatoon, indefinitely. Much like these four pictures, the future feels full of uncertainty and that’s not an easy thing to wrap the ol’ brain around. Sometimes I think it would be nice to have the mindset back that I had as a teenager, where change was exciting and welcomed and uncertainty was fun and mysterious (but if that came with the braces and outstanding awkwardness, I’ll pass). As one of my long time favorite quotes by William G.T. Shedd says, “A ship is safe in harbor, but that’s not what ships are for.”  So I’ll be living by that and bon-voyaging through life if anyone needs me! (..just invented that term. You may use it)

PS- Two pretty songs for your Tuesday here and here, + how to make everything OK.
